Baked Garlic

Baked Garlic


"Baked garlic is sweet and very yummy, as well as being very spreadable. Serve as an appetizer with a good crusty bread or with crackers. People can peel a piece of garlic off of the bulb and squeeze the soft, warm garlic our of its shell."

Well, this was difficult to rate. Really, I think that this particular recipe deserves a three due to the fact that olive oil is what you should use instead of butter and the time seems off. But...

Roasted garlic rocks for an easy appetizer. Made 4 heads of garlic this weekend with just a drizzle of olive oil (instead of butter). I upped the heat to 400 and baked for 45 min. Mushy, but so ...

I used olive oil instead of butter. Much more traditional and healthier. Excellent.
